Yunoko Lake, Nikko

(190+ reviews on the web)
Water Body Nature / Park
The so-called "lake of hot water," Yunoko Lake represents the merging place of different waters from the hot springs of the area, and serves as a favorite go-to for a day off in the pristine nature. Enjoy the view of the waterfall the lake creates upon the edge of steep cliffs, which contributes to the overall calming atmosphere. Onsite accommodations provide the option to stay overnight, but you can also spend the day relaxing and having a picnic, or go and try the boat rides. The site also offers a number of bars and restaurants where you can grab a bite while enjoying the view of the surrounding landscape. To visit Yunoko Lake and other attractions in Nikko, use our Nikko itinerary planner.
